BBO Crystal, SHG of Ti:Sapphire Lasers

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Altechna


Description :

Beta Barium Borate (BBO) is a non-linear optical crystal that combines a number of unique features. These features of nonlinear BBO crystal include wide transparency and phase matching ranges, large non-linear coefficient, high damage threshold and excellent optical homogeneity . Therefore, BBO provides an attractive solution for various non-linear optical applications like OPO, OPA, OPCPA and other. BBO is well suited for frequency conversion of high peak or average power laser radiation. The large spectral transmission range as well as phase matching, especially in UV range.
